    Some highlights/upgrades:

    -103,000 miles (no its not 203,000)
    -big brake conversion
    -rear disk brakes
    -all new brake line and fuel line everywhere (done right with the proper factory style connectors)
    -HO intake+throttle body
    -Power windows, power mirrors, power locks, auto headlamps, cruise (currently not working but i intend to fix it),
    -Tow package with all the coolers, 3.55 trac-lok rear
    -HPP's with good tires
    -Interior is in excellent shape
    -Newer CD player/radio
    -comes with another tailgate, quarter panel pieces, and rare rear spoiler/wing
    -newer custom exhaust with cats and flowmasters
    -wood vinyl is in excellent condition
    -1 year old KYB shocks all around
    -New water pump, chain, cover gasket, lower intake manifold gasket
    -Baumann shift kit in transmission, level one.
    -newer radiator and hoses, thermostat
    -Brand new battery
    -3G alternator conversion

    Negatives:
    -Rear windows need motors
    -rust on the quarters
    -Tailgate rusting in an odd spot
    -clear coat is peeling on the roof and just starting on the hood
    -has heat and A/c but both are a little weak- i believe it is something to do with the ATC sensor
    -rear tailgate refuses to lock
    -has the lopo knock when cold, a common problem that can usually exist for another 100K miles with proper oil changes

    Phil. Look into ebay. May potentially be worth it if not too much profit is taken away from fees and such. Some wagons go for some good coin. may get lucky.

    Oh man, bring it back to Michigan, Mark. This wagon originally started in Michigan at Star Lincoln Mercury of Southfield (look at the last picture).

    If you don't I might have to convince the wife that I need it. I need a new DD and the price is in my range (compared to my current top candidates).

    Just tell her all the balik bayan boxes will fit in the rear of the wagon so she can make a trip to the Philippines. You will be safe !
    Put a US flag sticker on your side of the rear window, Philippine flag sticker on her side. More points for you.
    Get her to choose personalized license plates in her language. You can buy any car you want.

    To bad my wife does not care in the least about my cars. Her last comment to me was " You can buy any car you want. Just pay me the same amount that you paid for the car. "

    First off, want to give a shoutout to Brown Muscle as he completely prepped the wagon for my trip back....oil change, extra fluids, MANY extra parts...just an awesome experience; glad that our little car club has real stand up people. Made the 11hr trip in one full swoop, easy gliding as the wagon runs awesome! Going to take care of Marge, her name stands.

    can't believe you drove it that far with no tag and didn't get impounded. Hell I drove a car 2 miles in Florida to the tax office to get a tag and got pulled over within sight of the place.

    covid-19 means no registration enforcement in Virginia...

    Back on topic... I really like this car. The colors, woodgrain, and HPP's ticks all the right boxes for me.

    I couldnt belive it.....there was nothing I could do. Cant get a plate right away, I had the title and proof of insurance, still become a cop magnet.

    The wood grain is in unbelievable condition. Knowing that Scott and Phil took care of her was a huge bonus as well. Definitely giving her the white glove treatment for preservation/maintenance (will make thread); they are really rare. Its fun as hell to drive...my kids love cruising in it.

    Apparently NJ does issue temp tags for out of state folk. Asked last time I was at DMV just for my own info. Wish they'd do that for residents, more than a few times I wanted to buy a thing and just needed some way to get it home to work on or strip without having to trailer or properly register it.

    Glad you bought the wagon. It sure looks nice. Great colors and looks well cared for. Hopefully the seats are power for the wife.
    11 hour trip was quite a test drive.
